We’re launching a new project with Cruxes Innovation soon

We are working with Cruxes Innovation –  who design and deliver experiential learning and coaching programs for researchers –  to help our industry partners and researchers increase and define the impact of our projects. We will send out the details soon about a new research project focused on cultivating impact readiness and capability for CRC researchers and theme coordinators in partnership with our industry partners.

We’re looking for new project ideas

We’re starting a new initiative to develop and diversify our research profile. Every quarter, we’ll release an Expression of Interest (EOI), asking members of the CRC community to propose new research projects. 

We’re releasing our first EOI round on 17 April, seeking project proposals focusing on cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and digitalisation of construction industry collaboration or processes. We will accept proposals from CRC researchers and industry partners. Successful projects will begin in July 2023. 

Keep an eye out for our emailed EOI invitation, which will contain further details and criteria. We look forward to your proposals!
